The burgeoning institutional investment practice at Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Australia’s leading independent law firm, has been further enhanced with the appointment of Fadi Khoury to the partnership.

Fadi joining the Corporate and Finance team at Corrs will help continue to drive the firm’s world-class institutional investment practice, which was boosted last month when Kon Mellos joined Corrs as a partner, based in Melbourne. Fadi joins Corrs from Norton Rose Fulbright and will be based in the firm’s Sydney office.

“Fadi is recognised as a trusted advisor to domestic and overseas investment clients, particularly in the area of fund structuring,” said Corrs Partner and CEO John W.H. Denton AO.

“He has advised on some of Australia’s most significant investment management, funds M&A and capital transactions across real estate, venture capital, private equity, and agricultural and infrastructure investment.

“Fadi is also widely respected for providing crucial commercial guidance to banks, fund managers, Fintech players and other financial services organisations here and abroad,” he said.

Clients highly value his depth of experience gained through 20 years of strategic guidance to players across different asset classes. Some highlights include advising global investment firms Invesco and KKR on their innovative credit based investment offerings into the Australian investor market. He designed the agricultural investment fund run by Laguna Bay Pastoral Company, which invests on behalf of major US and Australian institutions.

Fadi was entrusted with the role of establishing an investment management arm for Defence Housing Australia and successful Australian property fund offering. He also guided Host Plus on its acquisition of a half share in Sydney Convention Centre.

Fadi is consistently recognised as a leading lawyer in investment funds, fund management and financial services regulatory affairs by both Chambers and the Best Lawyers peer based review. He is an experienced lecturer and member of the Accreditation Board of the Australian Financial Markets Association.
